Going to Scotland this summer and trying to find lost relatives.
I am trying to verify the burial location of my GGGrandparents, Daniel Bartlett and Mahala (Osborne) Bartlett.

I am looking for information on a Bernice (LAKE)STUART who was born 5/1903 in Hunt Co. TX to a judge and his wife. The judge "arranged" the marriage of Bernice LAKE to the son of a banker: Charles STUART. Known facts are that two children were born of issue of this marriage: Charles William (b. 3/18/1923) and Alice Bernice (b. 3/6/1925, Bonner Springs, KS). Although it has yet to be confirmed, Charles STUART never enlisted in the military but would give soldiers a place to sleep and eat. He brought home a John Francis McISAAC (b. 6/29/1897 Nova Scotia) who was supposedly the "youngest Master Staff Sergeant in the Army" during that time. It is family lore that Bernice (LAKE) STUART met John Francis McISAAC while she lived in Coffey County, KS. It should be noted that Bernice LAKE was Catholic, as was John Francis McISAAC. No known religious practices are known of Charles STUART. Between 1925 and 1928, Bernice (LAKE) STUART left with John Francis McISAAC and moved to MA and then NY. The first daughter was born to John Francis McISAAC and Bernice (LAKE) STUART in November of 1928 in MA. Bernice (LAKE) STUART did not ever file for a legal divorce from Charles STUART and she never legally married John Francis McISAAC. Bernice (LAKE)McISAAC was contacted around 1957 by attorneys representing Charles STUART wanting to know where and when she filed for divorce. Apparently, Charles STUART did remarry thinking that Bernice had filed for a legal divorce. Any information regarding these individuals would be extremely appreciated. Family information is scarce as there are only two children of the marriage of John Francis McISAAC and Bernice (LAKE) STUART are still living.

I checked in the Coffey County Historical Museum and Genealogical Society for information on your query. There is a booklet "History of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Lebo, Kansas, 1884-1984" which includes history from the 1884-1934 booklet [they have it too but it's crumbly and I was hesitant on photo copying it]. There is a copy of the charter of the church that was 'applied for February 23, 1884, was granted and filed for record March 20, 1884, two years before the city of Lebo was incorporated. The charter remains in the Office of the Secretary of State, Topeka". The name James Day is listed as one of the original five trustees.
The Methodist Church is still an active church in Lebo, Kansas and I suspect that if you wrote to the church, that they could help you out with further information. The address: United Methodist Church, 201 W. 4th, Lebo, Kansas 66856.
